Twenty years ago, I started at BAAT Medical and for twelve years I’m the R&D Director. Initially, we were a bit reserved if we even wanted to reach out to external parties. We tried to find the QA/RA Manager ourselves first but concluded that we were not getting the desired results, keeping in mind there aren’t many professionals located in our area. Except that, we didn’t have any reservations to work with Panda since they already proved their value before by placing a Sr. Project Engineer.By a proactive approach, Panda is able to reach candidates that are hard to get in contact with ourselves. Next to that, they also manage to do this is in a very short time. It took Panda one and a half week to deliver a shortlist of five suitable QA/RA Managers and even introduced an additional one a few days later since they keep searching until the position is filled with the best fitting candidate. We see a lot of growing companies end up in unpleasant situations by making the mistake of hiring the wrong people. However, we’ll definitely keep working with Panda and I would highly recommend them to other companies.
Randstad Sourceright works at Philips with different levels of suppliers. Panda International has moved up to Gold supplier within 1.5 years, which is one level below the highest level.When I see internally that our Diamond suppliers cannot fill a position, I often see that Panda is the supplier who still knows how to fill in the job, and it is nice to know that we can trust and build on that.The contact with Panda, in general, is very pleasant and they follow up regularly.
I have worked as an RA Manager at Magforce for 3 years. I have spoken with a lot of headhunters but at the end of the day its about personality and trust. I was looking for a good partner and needed someone to take my hand on the other side. When working with Panda International, things are very transparent and fast. I find transparent communication and flow of info very beneficial in a recruitment partner as it allows me to make fast decisions. Overall, working with Panda is great - the way they share information, collaborate with me, quickness in terms of feedback makes it always a pleasure! For my team, you supplied a consultant and within 24 hours he was in place. I definitely recommend working with Panda International.
The reason why I decided to go with Panda International in the end, over the other agencies, is that I got the feeling that Panda International was much more specialised on the Medical Devices market than the other agencies.I was very impressed from the word go; the candidates were of a much higher quality than what I was used to and it truly exceeded my expectations.The way Pandas consultants managed the interview process is mention-worthy since I travel all places of the world, and communication is difficult at times. Pandas consultants quickly learned what works for RxSight and what we need. They learn quickly and it’s good to have someone that can take all that work out of your hands. If we need to make strategic hires again in the future, I will be sure to use Panda, I am more than happy to recommend them to other parties.
Working with Panda is reliable, professional and they are very strong in terms of content. The candidate who Panda quickly sentturned out to be perfect. Panda really excelled in speed.They immediately managed to put the right candidate on the table. What Panda also had on paper in terms of capacities turned out to be possible to determine in practice.That says something about Panda, but it also says something about the quality of the candidates they work with. The candidate has to do it eventually. The flexibility of both candidate and Panda was fantastic.Panda later also helped me with a new project, this time at Bettinehoeve. There I am now working on a very large project such as the Production Manager & Lead Production Excellence.
Generally a very good relationship. Very prompt replies, and high-quality collaboration. We made 2 hires via Panda.One was a Regulatory Affairs Manager in Uganda with whom we are still working and is really good.The hiring processes are very complex at Zoetis as we have 3 companies we need to handle which doesn't make it a quick process.We've really been appreciative of the patience and flexibility that Panda International shows as a partner. What is really great of Panda is that people are experts on the topic and they really know what they are doing!Panda is always happy to speak to me and give me industry insights.
In October 2019 we got in contact with Panda international as we were looking for a QA Specialist. We were then introduced to our dedicated Principal Recruitment Consultant. We did work with other agencies before, but we were interested to hear Panda Internationals proposition as results varied in the past.Although at first, we didn’t immediately see how they work differently after we started the collaboration we did notice why; working with Panda International is very positive, they are specialists in their markets and they deliver. They are quick to respond to my queries, knowledgeable about the market and think with us on potential solutions.The profiles that we received were all of a very high standard and included individual rapports on candidate skillset and emotional intelligence. This really helped to make decisions easy on who is the best fit for us, also culturally which is very important to Fonterra. In the end, we’ve made a successful hire through Panda International.I highly recommend working with Panda International.
Within the biopharmaceutical contract industry, you need to act fast.Bioceros had to fill 2 positions, and Panda was able to deliver a shortlist of good candidates fast.The interactions with the Panda consultants was very good. We are very pleased with their support and professionality and certainly will consider them for future assignments.
Our HR initially set up the relationship after we had difficulty filling a Quality Engineer position in my team. The relationship with Panda International was excellent from the beginning.What I like most about Panda International and their consultants, more than other companies, is that they actually listen to my feedback and improve results upon it.I really notice that other parties keep sending candidates that are available, but not necessarily the ones that are the best match for Oculentis. Again, the consultants at Panda are very good listeners and adjusts their course accordingly, but they are also not afraid to let me know what is realistic or not.I would strongly recommend Panda International as they have now made 5 placements in my team over a 2 year period.
